_Club Membership Fee Increases in 2018:
- ● Membership prices will increase effective January 1, 2018
“on your renewal date”.
- ● Mike’s comments…annual
membership dues will increase to $60 for individual memberships
and $75 for family memberships, effective on your renewal date.
This increase is necessary to help cover the ever increasing cost
of maintaining the club. The increase will take at least a year
for us to fully realize the benefits. The membership increase will
put us in a solid financial position to address much needed
improvements that will be necessary going forward. This was not an
easy decision to make but we know it is necessary for the long
term financial health of our club.
